Preparing a New Generation for Leadership Success

October 10, 2016 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Preparing a New Generation for Leadership Success

The Millennial Generation, raised by parents who nurtured and structured their lives, brought up during the “empowerment years” where everyone won and no one lost, drawn to their families for safety and security this inclusive, informal, well-educated, optimistic, collaborative cohort is now 35% of the US Workforce.

If you are like many leaders, you are coming to the conclusion that assigning leadership roles to Millennials might be a good idea. In fact, 15% of Millennials in the workplace are in formal leadership roles.

No longer the new kids on the block, Millennials are business leaders, managers, public office holders, parents, entrepreneurs, and board members. As a generation, Millennial leaders are serious, valued contributors filling our talent pipelines.

Think again, if you believe Millennials are the managers of the past. They think, work and live differently. Many of them are responsible for teams, departments and organizations that resemble a four-generation family reunion, requiring great flexibility of leadership style.

Diane Thielfoldt of The Learning Café will provide a very brief introduction to Millennial leaders and how to prepare our organizations to welcome, engage and retain current and future Millennial leaders. She will then facilitate a panel who will share their views and perspectives (the inside scoop) on the Millennials and the Millwork Industry.

The Panel will offer a Millennial perspective on practical and relevant business issues including:

  • Why Millennials would consider a career in the Millwork Industry
  • Building customer relationships
  • The flexible work environment
  • What engages and retains Millennials
  • Millennials and Associations

The session will conclude with Questions and Answers from the audience.
